Lots of people are coming to this site looking for bulk vegetable oil. For some reason, â€œbulk vegetable oilâ€ is coming up as a search term based on the article I wrote about entitled How Much Does Vegetable Oil Weigh?. Since thatâ€™s the case, I thought I would take a moment to list some of the consumer resources in my area where I can purchase bulk vegetable oil in large enough and economical enough quantities to fuel a vehicle. Here are the top bulk vegetable oil resources Iâ€™ve come across:
These vary by region. Iâ€™m not having much luck finding a distributor that will sell anything less than a truckload of bulk veggie oil. For your area, you may want to check your local yellow pages or the internet to see what you come up with. Thereâ€™s also a great resource on the internet that will put you in touch with potential suppliers at http://www.bulkoil.com/.
Warehouse stores are quickly becoming one my favorites because theyâ€™re cheaper than the grocery store, donâ€™t ask questions, and carry quantities that are designed for commercial use. I have both a Costco and a Samâ€™s Club near my house and both have a reasonable selection of bulk vegetable oil either by the gallon or the pound depending on what youâ€™re buying.
These are the least economical, but are also the most prevalent. Wal-Mart is at the top of the grocery store list for their store-brand vegetable oil, but you can get something similar from the local Albertsons, Kroger, Sack Nâ€™ Save, etc. Aside from the price, you can also expect some awkward stares and a conversation with the checkout girl about how your car runs on bulk vegetable oil. Whether thatâ€™s good or bad is up to you.
